Wolves Close To Sealing A Move For This Talented Striker: What Will He Bring To The Molineux?

According to a recent report by Sky Sports (transfer live blog; 18:11), Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to secure the signature of Barcelona SC forward Leonardo Campana in January. The same source has also mentioned that the Ecuadorian prospect will travel to England this weekend to complete his transfer to the Molineux Stadium. It is believed that the West Midlands outfit has managed to agree on an £800,000 fee to land the talented youngster later this month (via Sky Sports).

Campana’s Remarkable Rise In South America

Campana came through the youth ranks of Ecuadorian side Barcelona SC before breaking out as a first-team starter last year. He has enjoyed a productive spell in the LigaPro Serie A after putting in a string of eye-catching displays so far.

The 19-year-old has made a total of 21 senior appearances for the South American outfit, scoring four goals while providing three assists in all competitions. At such a tender age, the Guayaquil-born frontman has also earned four senior caps for the Ecuadorian national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.

There is no denying that he has the potential to become a world-class centre-forward someday, but for that to happen, he needs to make a move overseas so that he can improve his game while playing against the best players in European football.

Wolves could be an ideal destination for him as Nuno Espirito Santo has proven his worth as a successful manager who can develop his young players into top professionals.

What Will The Ecuador International Bring To The Molineux?

Campana has shown a lot of maturity and growth as a target man up top. He has contributed by scoring and setting up some important goals for Barcelona SC over the past year. He is a confident young centre-forward who will undoubtedly improve the overall depth of the Wolves squad.

The South American sensation can learn a ton from Raul Jimenez and could turn out to be a willing understudy to the Mexican international at the West Midlands club. Furthermore, Nuno has what it takes to get the best out of Campana in the coming years. Therefore, recruiting the Ecuadorian whizkid will be a shrewd move for Wolves in the long-run.
